Rain, lots of rain
Tuesday morning brought lots of rain to Phoenix and it continued throughout the day. It was great to see it come down. The only drawback is that so many valley residents have no idea how to drive in rain. I saw lots of skidding and sliding that was really unnecessary. I guess it pays to learn to drive where rain happens quite a lot.
Update: I heard this morning that some pretty severe flooding happened north of Phoenix. There was flooding, mudslides, rockslides and Interstate 17 coming into Phoenix had to be closed for a time while the road was cleared. They got quite a bit more rain than we did in the central part of the city.
